K'gari (Fraser Island) Day Tour Itinerary:

Make the most of the day with an early start from Noosa (pick-ups from 5.45am). Drive 1.5 hours North to our last pick-up location, at the sleepy coastal town of Rainbow Beach. After checking that everyone has what they need for the day, it’s a short drive to meet our ferry at Inskip Point. Pay attention; the short cruise is a great opportunity to spot dolphins, dugongs, and other marine life before reaching the World Heritage-listed K’Gari (Fraser Island).


We head North along the island’s ‘Beach Highway’, 75 Mile Beach. We spend time at the un-missable Eli Creek, then travel along the coastline to the SS Maheno Shipwreck. After learning about the shipwreck’s colourful past, we head inland, meandering along some of the many tracks before arriving at Boorangoora (Lake McKenzie). Take your time to chill out or have a swim in the refreshing, crystal-clear waters. This is one of Australia's most stunning and photographed locations.


It's time to head to the old logging headquarters at Central Station, where your guide will provide some information about the logging history, towering rainforests, and the special silent waters of Wanggoolba Creek. Take the optional 1.8km walk through the rainforest along the creek and meet the guide at Pile Valley. From Pile Valley, we let the vehicle do all the work as we drive back out to the Eastern Beach along 75 Mile Beach to catch the ferry.

We drop off any passengers staying at Rainbow Beach before our drive back to Noosa, arriving at approximately 6-7 pm.

Keeping K’Gari Pristine:

K’Gari Discovery Adventures is committed to keeping the island pristine. All rubbish from the tour will be kept in the touring vehicle and removed from K’Gari upon our return to Rainbow Beach. We will provide separate bins for recyclable products and general waste.


Our environmentALLY conscious travellers:

We recognize that many of our passengers think like us and want a World Heritage-listed destination to remain beautiful for generations to come. Discovery K’Gari Adventures has recently committed to providing a third bin, which will be used to collect rubbish and debris found on the beach and walking trails. You may encounter some debris or rubbish during one of the many short walks. We encourage you to collect this rubbish, carry it with you until you return to the vehicle and place it in our bin. We can all make a difference!
